Our July crate makers:
A vegan, Canadian owned company who works directly with organic farmers and producers to bring unique offerings with ethical attributes. Many products feature up-cycled and recyclable packaging that is hand made by a women's cooperative offering livable reliable wages.
Why we love them: Because they dared to make watermelon chips! They might all stick together in the package, but they taste just like candy.
